Illumined Philistine

The "Philistine" series was printed in a multitude of styles, bindings. From Buckram spines to suede spines; paper over boards, fiber boards, cloth over boards, 3/4 leather with marbled boards; half year issues of 6 Philistines to full year issues of 12 Philistines; label variations, cover font changes, you name it, The Roycroft did it! Well almost! It appears a few were even illumined. I have a volume #12 where all the capitals are illumined. Is it Roycroft or after market? While not particularly good illumination it is as good as some I have seen that I know is Roycroft.
